Teaching Comprehension Strategies with Theme Specific Literature

If you look at the Comprehension Strategies for Reading you will find 12 specific ones that are key to teach:

I took these 12 strategies each month and linked them to specific themed literature for that month.
Here are Septembers and they focus on these stories:

The strategies can be taught as mini lessons using the text from the literature.  Each strategy has an activity page to accompany it along with suggestions from me in the packet. Here you see from the story Dad's First Day the students are predicting how their parents felt on the first day.  I really fell these encourage thinking outside the box and get students early on identifying with the text they are reading.

Also available in the bundle for the months September thru May.
